Summer Assignments

Dear Students:

Summer break is of course, a wonderful time to recharge, rest and play...  The school break however, also offers a wonderful opportunity to expand your horizons in a different way - dive leisurely into books...  prepare yourself for next school year, or review topics of the year that just finished...

Your teachers have carefully prepared a list of recommended books and a few other assignments to work on, at your pace, during these long summer months!

Enjoy and have a restful summer!
